Avgår vid 4:30 PM
Located on England's South Coast, Southampton is a city full of surprises. Home to one of the largest ports in Europe, the city has a lot to offer people passing through for the day. Step back in time and explore the old town — walk along the medieval town walls, parts of which date back to 1290. Visit Bargate, a medieval gatehouse built by Normans in the 12th century. Check out SeaCity Museum and learn about what it would have been like to set sail on the Titanic in 1912 — Southampton is where the historic ship left port. Or venture out and explore the Hampshire countryside: Iconic Stonehenge is just a one-hour drive away.

Prehistoric Adventure

Located just an hour from Southampton, Stonehenge is one of the most well-known prehistoric sites in all of Europe. Wander around the miraculous stone circle and transport yourself back in time when Neolithic engineers used only simple tools to build the huge monument — it's believed they hauled those massive stones over 240 miles from Wales without the use of machines.

A Port of Importance

Southampton is home to one of the largest ports in the UK and millions of travelers pass through each year. In 1912, the most famous of those travelers would pass through as they set out to America onboard the Titanic. Southampton's SeaCity museum gives you the opportunity to learn more about the events that happened aboard that famous ship.

Play Knights in Armor

Step back into the medieval era and walk the old walls of the city. Built to protect the town from attack by sea, most of the wall is still standing, leaving visitors a spectacular view of Southampton and the sea. Watch as boats enter the port city, and see how it would have been if you were a knight on watch hundreds of years ago.

Local Cuisine

Head to the pub for a refreshing glass of ale to pair with crispy, mouthwatering fish and chips.

You'll also find upscale fare based on England's most-loved flavors: Try chicken with Indian-inspired vegetable pakora and tandoori puree or braised Hampshire beef with ale cream.

Från 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Gibraltar rocks — in more ways than one. From ancient castles to lush botanical gardens and the panoramic views you enjoy from the city's cable car, this British Overseas Territory is more than its most famous landmark, the Rock of Gibraltar. Cruise to Gibraltar and discover more than 300 years of history while touring landmarks like the Convent, where Gibraltar's governors have resided since the 18th century. Or monkey around with Barbary macaques, a semi-wild species of monkey that calls the territory home. Finish your day with a stroll through the port area, and dine outdoors for ocean views and seafood-focused, Mediterranean-inspired eats.

Trace History

Gibraltar's Moorish Castle is both its most popular historical attraction and its oldest one, dating back to the 8th century. Explore more recent history at British colonial buildings like the Convent and the Gibraltar Parliament. Or explore the city's multicultural roots at the Cathedral of St. Mary the Crowned, Gibraltar Hindu Temple or Ibrahim-al-Ibrahim Mosque, a gift from the Saudi king.
Insider tip
Despite its small size, Gibraltar boasts days worth of activities. Focusing in on the most important ones to you will help you get the most out of your adventure.
Gibraltar, United Kingdom, Monkey

Monkey Around

Hundreds of playful Barbary macaques reside at the so-called Top of the Rock. You can reach it by cable car or by walking up the Mediterranean steps. Hungry for more ecotourism? Check out the Gibraltar Botanic Gardens, take a boat trip out on the bay to see the dolphins, or head to scenic Europa Point, which provides views of Africa on clear days.
Insider tip
Don't worry about exchanging your euros for Gibraltarian pounds — most shops in Gibraltar will happily accept the former, even if they give you change in the latter.

Get Some Light Exercise

At just 2.7 square miles in area, Gibraltar is small enough you can explore a lot of it while you're here with your cruise. That said, you need not wander far from Gibraltar Port in order to enjoy yourself. Grab a lunch of moules marinieres at a portside restaurant, then walk it off with a stroll out to the island's southern tip, Europa Point, and iconic Trinity Lighthouse.
Gibraltar, United Kingdom, Profiteroles Cream Pastry

Local Cuisine

Not surprisingly, the star of Gibraltar's culinary scene is fresh seafood, with Atlantic white fish and shellfish taking center stage. You'll also find a variety of cultural influences: Try Italian-inspired chickpea-flour calentita bread and the national dish profiterole, a French puff-pastry filled with sweet whipped cream. Al fresco dining is the way to go here, whether you sit portside or on pedestrian-filled Casemates Square.
Gibraltar, United Kingdom, Handmade Glass
Assorted handmade glass ornaments

Shopping

Gibraltar's most popular keepsake is handmade glass. Glass shops from Main Street to Casemates Square will be happy to wrap your gifts up for safekeeping. If you're still nervous about transporting glass, you can admire the glass-makers at their craft, or purchase other souvenirs like artisan chocolate or Barbary macaque stuffed animals during your Iberian Peninsula cruises.

France's oldest city, Marseille blends ancient charm with Provencal beauty. In the morning, head to the fish market Quai des Belges, where trade has been going on for more than 2,600 years — stroll along the promenades and 18th-century warehouses, and grab a cafe au lait and a melon tarte from one of the cafes on the ground floor. Cruise to Provence and check out the Basilique Notre-Dame de la Garde: Built in the 19th century in a neo-Byzantine style, its golden statue of the Virgin and Child dominates the Marseille skyline. Then, take in the modern architecture and Mediterranean cultural artifacts at the MuCEM art museum, or see the craggy limestone cliffs of Calanques National Park, a half-hour drive outside the city.

It's also home to two of the city's finest museums, the Natural Museum and the Museum of Fine Art, both of which are well worth a stop.
Insider tip
If you've read "The Count of Monte Cristo," the name Chateau d'If might ring a bell. Visit this 16th-century castle to learn about the realities of prison life at the time of Dumas's novel. You can even take a boat here directly from the port.

Local Cuisine

The signature dish of Marseille is without a doubt the savory bouillabaisse.

Shopping

Le Panier, just north of the port, dates back to 600 BC. While its colored walls, narrow streets and sunny squares once made up one of the poorest districts of the city, today it's filled with trendy independent boutiques, craft shops and galleries. Cruise to Provence and look for handmade savon de Marseille, the traditional green or white soap made with olive oil that has been exported from Marseille for centuries.

Med 28 århundraden av berömd historia är Rom fortfarande på första plats när det gäller oöverträffat äventyr. Staden som utlöste världens största rike är lika levande i våra dagar med ett virrvarr av gamla ruiner, världsberömd konst och livfull gatukultur. Här kan du leva la dolce vita, återkalla antika Roms storhetstid och snurra pastan runt gaffeln i en trattoria. Kör förbi månghundraåriga basilikor i en trehjulig Ape Calessino, eller beundra målningar av de italienska mästarna i Villa Borghese. Oavsett om det är Vatikanens andliga lockelse, charmen utmed Trasteveres bakgator, eller Colosseums kamptraditioner, så består den eviga staden med sina oändliga äventyr.

Moor History

Ascend to the top of La Alcazaba, the medieval Moorish fortress that towers over the city. This palatial fortification was built by the Hammudid dynasty in the early 11th century and is the best-preserved Moorish castle in Spain. From here, you can wander down to the Roman Amphitheatre that sits beneath it, before you gaze up at the 16th-century cathedral that sits right in the city center.
Insider tip
The center of Málaga is relatively small and walkable, but don't take this for granted — three to five hours will pass quickly.

It just wouldn't be a trip to the Costa del Sol without a little coast and sun.

Málaga cruises provide access to an eclectic range of other souvenirs, like hand-painted Andalusian ceramics or handmade fans to help you beat the heat. You can also find some of Spain's best olive oil here — pick up some of this cloudy, spicy liquid gold from the Ataranzas Market.

Lisbon is a quintessential European city, full of natural beauty, historic architecture and culinary pleasures — not to mention one of the best climates anywhere on the planet. To get to know Portugal's capital, walk between the captivating miradouros — terrace viewpoints that are scattered on the hilltops, offering stunning vistas from the sea to the castles and beyond. Watch as the light peeks through the clouds and shines down on The City of Seven Hills during your cruise to Lisbon. If you're a history buff, head to Belem or nearby Sintra to explore UNESCO World Heritage Sites like the Jeronimos Monastery and Quinta da Regalaira.

Get Romantic

Step into the pages of a fairy tale in Sintra, a UNESO World Heritage Site a short ride from Lisbon. The city's awash in colorful buildings and grand forts, including the Romanticist architecture of the pastel-hued Pena Palace — more like a castle, really — and the extravagant Quinta da Regalaira villa. Or, wander through gardens inspired by Dante's "Inferno."
Insider tip
Tram 28 is the best-known tram line, taking riders through all the must-see neighborhoods, but the trolleys fill up quickly. Opt for a lesser known route to avoid crowds.

Located on England's South Coast, Southampton is a city full of surprises. Home to one of the largest ports in Europe, the city has a lot to offer people passing through for the day. Step back in time and explore the old town — walk along the medieval town walls, parts of which date back to 1290. Visit Bargate, a medieval gatehouse built by Normans in the 12th century. Check out SeaCity Museum and learn about what it would have been like to set sail on the Titanic in 1912 — Southampton is where the historic ship left port. Or venture out and explore the Hampshire countryside: Iconic Stonehenge is just a one-hour drive away.

Prehistoric Adventure

Located just an hour from Southampton, Stonehenge is one of the most well-known prehistoric sites in all of Europe. Wander around the miraculous stone circle and transport yourself back in time when Neolithic engineers used only simple tools to build the huge monument — it's believed they hauled those massive stones over 240 miles from Wales without the use of machines.

A Port of Importance

Southampton is home to one of the largest ports in the UK and millions of travelers pass through each year. In 1912, the most famous of those travelers would pass through as they set out to America onboard the Titanic.

Play Knights in Armor

Step back into the medieval era and walk the old walls of the city. Built to protect the town from attack by sea, most of the wall is still standing, leaving visitors a spectacular view of Southampton and the sea. Watch as boats enter the port city, and see how it would have been if you were a knight on watch hundreds of years ago.
